Between Heaven and Earth (Palestine)

In her third movie, Between Heaven and Earth, Palestinian director, Najwa Najjar, continues to explore her nation’s plight through the eyes and experiences of her characters. Here a handsome middle-class couple, Tamer, played by Firas Nassar (Fauda, Foxtrot), and Salma, played by Mouna Hawa (In Between), are trying to get divorced, but the court rejects their petition because Tamer’s identity papers don’t match the court records, so they embark on a road journey across Israel and Palestine, searching for his roots.
